The 22-year-old Hammers ace has been absolutely superb over the past three seasons.

And he has now fully established himself as a vital player for both West Ham and England.

Rice is a pivotal part of David Moyes’s squad at the London Stadium.

It’s a real worry for West Ham that a big club will come knocking for Dec’s services ones day.

One of those clubs is Manchester City. Pep Guardiola wants to bring the 22-year-old Hammers ace to The Etihad according to a report from The Times.

And the Man City boss is allegedly a huge fan of the West Ham man.

 

Pep Guardiola really impressed by Declan Rice

Claret and Hugh claims that Pep and Txiki Begiristain were hugely impressed by Rice’s talents and likened him to Sergio Busquets.

It is no surprise that Dec has impressed arguably the best manager in world football.

He really is that good.

As long as West Ham match Rice’s ambition, there is no reason why we can’t keep him at the London Stadium for the foreseeable future.

Manchester City hovering in the background is certainly a worry for the Hammers fans, however.

Dec is a loyal young man, however. That much is clear and obvious to see. It would take a serious amount of money to prise him away from West Ham as well.

And as things stand, we think Rice will definitely be playing for the Hammers next season.
